Aesthetics: A Reader in Philosophy of the Arts
Prentice Hall/Pearson Education, 2011 - Philosophy - 464 pages
For courses in the Philosophy of ART.
Unlike traditional Philosophy of Art anthologies, AESTHETICS, 3/e gives special attention to popular arts as well as the "fine arts". It divides articles into sections according to specific arts, while also providing sections on classical and contemporary sources -- appealing to teachers in various disciplines.
As with every subsequent edition, this book brings together readings in continental and analytic philosophy. It also contains helpful introductions by the editors for each section, as well as a variety of art selections that provide instructors with plenty of options and opportunities to enliven their courses.,
